Almost a year since the start of Black Girl Meetup. Throughout this period, I have met brilliant women, had fantastic conversations, all in the presence of outstanding art pieces. You might be wondering… a year? How so? I haven’t seen anything on here?!
You’d be right. I have fallen behind in my consistency, especially in regards to posting updates about Black Girl Meetup. I have relied on the speed and efficiency of social media. But I’m back . . . for good!
Black Girl Meetup is going to see Lina Iris Viktor’s work on October 17th at 6pm. Please be sure to register and attend, as it’s a great way to meet other wonderful Black women a and, hopefully, form new bonds. Click here to register: BGM

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Become immersed in deep lustres of black punctuated with luminous 24-karat gold and opulent ultramarine blue hues in Lina Iris Viktor’s singular artistic universe.
Her photography, painting and sculptural installations are infused with cultural histories of the global African diaspora and preoccupied with multifaceted notions of blackness: as colour, as material and as socio-political consciousness. To Viktor, black is the proverbial materia prima: the source, the dark matter that birthed everything.
This is the British-Liberian artist’s first major solo exhibition in the UK, with more than 60 works on display in two galleries, many seen for the first time.
